NO 591 TWO INDIAN SENATORS IN CONTRARY POSITIONS Messrs Curtis and Owen Hold Different Views as to Tribal Relations A Dramatic Incident In the Course of the Debate On the Indian Appropriation Bill-TIie Army Bill Still Before the House. Washington. Feb. 27. A highly dra matic scene in which two senators with Indian blood in their vein, and members of former Indian tribes, car ried on an animated and acrimonious debute, marked the proceeding of the senate today. Senator Owen of Oklahoma, a member of the Cherokee nation, fought in a wordy battle to have the word "late" placed before the designation. "Five Civilized Tribes," declaring that he wanted to record the death of the old tribal relations. Senator Curtis, of Kansas, part Kaw Indian, taunted his fellow Indian with the statement he was under Ue con trol of the secretary of interior. There ensued a wordy battle that entertained both the senators and visitors in the galleries. When the senate voted on the proposition it was against the contention i Mr. (J"en. Mr. McCreary of Kentucky, spoke on the currency bill. After a fdrther consideration of the Indian bill the senate adjourned. President Roosevelt transmitted to the senate today thirteen treaty dec larations, the product of The Hague peace conference. The treaties were accompanied by an exhaustive report f the doings of the American delega tion to The Hague and also a letter of transmittal by Secretary Root. The declaration forbids the dropping of hifrh explosives from balloons in time of war. Three of the treaties did not receive t?ie approval of the American delega tion to The Hague. These conventions were relative to the status of mer chant ships at the commencement of hostilities, relative to the conversion of such ships into ships of war. and tin' convention defining the rights and !uties of neutral powers in maritime war. The delegation also withheld its approval of the explanation agreed upon as to reason for non-action by the convention on the complusory ar bitration treaty. EVICTION OF A COMMITTEE. Washington. Feb. 27. The all pow erful committee on ways ana means of the house today was put to rout by an overwhelming vote and ordered qut of the capitoi to the new house office building a block away. The various members of the committee, hai by Messrs. Payne and Dalzell, strenuously objected to removal but they had only a weak following. Protests availed them nothing. The committee's pres ent roon.s are desired in order that the speakr may have more commodious iuarters. The army appropriation bill was dis c ussed at length. The provision for mi-eased pay for non-comnilosieiied officers and privates was finally htrickcu out. W ith the bill still under consideration the house adjourned. During the day Representative Lilly introduced a series of resolutions call ing upon the secretary of the navy for information in his possession concern ing submarine boats. GOSART" ON A.

RUSSIAN JUSIICE EALLS ON TERRORISTS Seven Condemned to Death For a Con spiracy Unearthed Only a Week Ago. St. Petersburg. Feb. 27. The mili tary court, sitting in Fortress S. S.

Among those upon whom death sen tence was pronounced is a supposed Italian journalist. Calvino. who repre sented at St. Petersburg the paper La Vita of Rome, and II Tempo of Milan. A special attorney was secured for him by the Italian embassv. but Calvino spurned the assistance of the emba-ssy, saying that he wished to share the fate of his comrades. Addressing the court in broken Russian he made the sensational declaration that the pass port that bore his name was not real ly his. He therefore desired to be I tried as a Russian subject. All efforts ' nn Itw. r,jt .f dm ....., ... I... I...... V, I ... to disclose his real name and status proved unavailing. Two women were also sentenced to death anil one to imprisonment.

Pittsburg, Feb. 27. The deposition of Clifford Hooe, the negro coachman, taken in behalf of Millionaire August Hartje in support of his divorce peti tion against his wife in which the ne gro stated that during his employment in the Hartje family there had been improper relations between himself and Mrs. Hartje. was read to the Jury in the conspiracy case against Hartje, his friend John T. Welshons and Hooe, late todar. This Is the first time the text of the depositions was made pub lic. While it was taken for use In the divorce case it was then decided not to introduce it. The reading of the document occupied nearly two hours. It was a disgusting recital which Hooe has since declared had no foundation in fact. Welshons, a prominent East End merchant, is accused of having plan ned with Hooe for the making of the charges and preparing the several statements, in the final deposition to aid Hartjti In his divorce suit. Hartje ,'is accused of having conspired with I Welshons and Hooe for the use of tes timony. These accusations form the I basis of the cases now on trial, the three having been Indicted for conspir 'ac and subornation of perjury. The prosecution is being con ducted bv attornevs for Mrs. Hartje : conducted by attorneys for. Mrs. Hartje j the district attorney and his associates , not taking any part In the case, be ' cause the district attorney and Hartje are first cousins. ! Former Aslsstant District Attorney, John S. Robb, who prosecuted Hooe on .the perjury charge, for which he is now doing time and .ho Is attorney for Mrs. Hartje, took the stand today to testify to certain statements Hooe Is : alleged to have made regarding the charges against Mrs. Hartje. The at torneys for the defense made strenu ous objection to h's testifying. The court ruled that he might testify, but that if he did so, he would be disqual ified for arguing the case before the i Jury, whereupon he withdrew from the ; stand. Charles H. Gillespie, the reporter, i was' called to" the stand but the de fense objected to his testifying because 1 he we.s under arrest in connection 'with the. case.

JAPANESE RESENT THE WORD "PANIC" Situation Over the Financial Sews Ahroad Concerning Island Conditions T'ikio, Feb 27. Speclaiv cableraris from New York and London, published in the Tokio newspapers, created as tonishment in financial circles, because It Is evident that certain influences are determined to misrepresent and exag grrale existing conditions in Japan. These special cablegrams say that the decline of Japanese securities Is due to a financial panic. The use of the word "panic" is entirely unwarranted. Owing to a continued depression of the silk market, due largely to the American situation and the unsatisfac tory rotlon trade In China, a number of firms in Osaka and Kobe have fail ed during the last three weeks, and two or three minor banks in those provinces have closed. It is believed that the depression will continue until after the general election.

Washington. Feb. 27. The general discussion todar among members of the senate committee on naval affairs, indicated that an investigation of the charges. tf -defects in battleship con struction will be extended to a number of other questions that have attracted public attention, among them whether staff officers, such as naval surgeons shall be given command of hospital ships or other naval vessels. This un doubtedly will result in reopening the controversy between Rear Admiral Brownson and Surgeon General Rixey, which was disposed of by the president supporting the latter in his contention that a surgeon should be given com mand of the hospital ship Relief. 1 Rear Admiral N. E. Mason chief of the ordnance bureau, explained to the committee today the workings of tur ret ammunition hoists from the pow der handling rooms and the big guns of modern battleships. His testimony was given with a view of refuting the criticisms made by Henry Reuterdahl in a recent magazine' article. Reuter dahl charged that there was great danger of accidents with straight hoists and open turrets and that a number of life destroying explosions such as thosa on the Messouri and the Georgia, were caused by faulty hoists. Mason denied this and by comparisons, with the ships of other navies, he en deavored to show that American meth ods are euual to anv. .After an extended review of the dif ferent periods in which changes had been made in hoists. Chairman Hale summed t'p. a statement as follows: "Then, you believe that we have taken every step that can be taken to control and prevent this flare-back danger, and that, so far as hoists go. they are as sate as they can be made?" "Yes sir, I do," repliedjhe Admiral. Mr. Tillman referred to the charges made by Reuterdahl that there might at some time be need for emergency hoists. Mason admitted that there might at some time be need for emer gency hoists, but he said there was not room in the turrets for their installa tion. He expressed an opinion that the necessity for the emergency hoists was not appreciably dangerous. It was brought out that the hoist of the new type in the turrets was not as safe as the direct hoist. It was put in be cause of-the insistent demand of of ficers and seamen who believed it would permit more rapid firing. "It seems then." interrupted Mr. Till man, "that victory Is more important to the navy than the pixtection of hu man lives." "Of course" responded Mason. "Men of the battleships are right in think ing that the ship that gets the most shots has the greatest advantage." "I hope the navr department will go slow In v.-hat it does hereafter in sacrificing safety to rapidity of firing" said Mr. Ha!n. Mason estimated that the cost of chirg'r.g the turrets of all battleships of the nvv so as to bring them up to the most approved standard known, would not be in excess of $16,000 for PHOENIX ACADEMY AND BUSINESS COLLEGE.

BURTIS, IS East Washington St., - - Phoenix. ABOUT NAVAJO BLANKETS It makes me laugh this thing of some curio dealers talking about having Navajo blankets by the thousand. Why don't you know there arc hardly a thousand Navajo Indian blankets on sale in the entire territories of Arizona and New Mexico. If there were thousands for sale you wouldn't want one because everybody else would have them, and people of aesthetic taste are not willing to spend their hard earned cash to acquire simply the eery day things tha( every old body has. But If it's Navajo blankets you want. I have more of them in my store than all other dealers in Phoenix combined. If you are in doubt about it come and see. And I pride myself on my taste In Indian af fairs as well as on my knowledge of what constitutes quality in a Navajo blanket. Theee matters are among those that 'enable' me to of fer low prices o good, staff. I don't have to make up on a good blanket my loss on a poor one. I don't buy poor ones because I do my own buying, and no red skin can fool me. I?. L BA1HE U. S. Indian Trader Proprietor of the Big Curio It Shall Embrace the Controversy each ship.
